Good Stick Forever

Wesley F., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I'm not sure what is going on, but I see NEWEGG's website the joystick being sold for upwards of $100+. That can't be right. I paid about $35. What's up with that?
  • Pros: I bought this joystick years ago. It is a good stick. Due to stuff beyond my control,I no longer have access to it so I bought a new one. For the cost and feature set it's hard to beat.
  • Cons: It no longer seems to have the profiler software that I first used with it. IT NEEDS TO BE ATTACHED TO THE LOGITECH GAMING SOFTWARE that Logitech seems to require. It doesn't seem to work with Elite:Dangerous.

Great Product

Paul W., Newegg
21 July 2015
  • Summary: Extra buttons and Throttle location could have been better thought out. Despite cons I am actually very pleased with the stick. Own many Logitech items and never been unhappy with them.
  • Pros: Plug and Play, Grip is very nice, Most buttons are well located,
  • Cons: Don't like button under thumb as I tend to press it when rotating stick. tends to slide around on smooth surface. I use self-adhesive Velcro to hold in place.

Good beginner/casual stick.

David J., Newegg
4 June 2015
  • Summary: This stick served me well for a few months in Elite Dangerous. However, as my skill level increases, I notice more and more the QC shortfalls of this stick. I have since moved on to an entry level HOTAS by Thrustmaster and haven't looked back.
  • Pros: Good stick height - a little tall for my hands but I can still reach all the buttons with relative ease. Great sensitivity, great resistance, and no built-in dead zone (though this could also be a Con depending on the person). Throttle feels nice too, however I never used it due to the positioning.
  • Cons: Numbered buttons on the base are cheap and can stick after a short time. Stick is slightly loose while centered and quickly becomes worse the more it's used - getting a perfect center eventually becomes a chore. This can be "fixed" by adjusting dead zones in your game or software, but you'll lose...

Pretty good

Peter S., Newegg
2 June 2015
  • Summary: Right-handed. Stiff. If you are a really skinny nerd and don't work out at all, this stick won't offer very good precision: the strength in your arm is a big part of how precisely you can fly and aim with this thing.
  • Pros: A proper stick for proper stick-and-throttle games. Massive overkill for Lucasarts' X-wing games. Fast and annoying ships became very much easier to swat down over an Xbox gamepad. Works out-of-the-box in Linux/DOSBox and Windows.
  • Cons: Stiffness not adjustable.

Solid joystick

Minh-Huy R., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • Summary: I like this joystick a lot, especially considering this is my first joystick ever. There are plenty of things to like and hate about it. I personally would enjoy a simpler, smaller, but stronger joystick since I prefer to play on keyboard and stick, but overall, a good choice for both longtime users...
  • Pros: Solid feel for a joystick. Plenty of Macro buttons on joystick whether you are playing with the joystick alone or with a keyboard.
  • Cons: Not a fan of the "square" base axis when you rotate the joystick around.. I much prefer a "circle" base axis. Joystick is a bit on the larger side for me (particularly the base), but necessary to provide stability for the joystick.

User Review

Edmond G., Newegg

  • Pros: Solid resistance. I used it for rough WW2 combat sims. Durable at the moment. Great throttle resistance. Great rudder control.
  • Cons: Some buttons feel cheap. This is a very minor issue for me. If you are someone into casual flying, this is for you.

Overall, Nice Solid Feel, with One Glaring Deficiency

Donald H., Newegg
24 January 2015
  • Summary: The downloadable software is needed to customize the response for different applications. Documentation on "sensitivity" setting is lacking. I expected it to control the output level multiplier, but this is set by "Range"; "Sensitivity" seems to control the shape of the response curve.
  • Pros: Like I said, it has a solid, smooth feel with a wide stable base. Does a nice job of staying put when the action gets going. Feels good in the hand. Well placed buttons on the stick.
  • Cons: One annoying manufacturing defect, one that should be easily avoidable: the resolvers, at least on the X and Y axes, are positioned by small slotted plastic nubs which engage a short stalk extending from each resolver body. On the Y axis of my stick, this molded slot is oversized or deformed, so ...

Quality Stick for the Price

Roy R., Newegg
27 April 2014
  • Summary: For the price this thing goes for, it's well worth the time. It's a relatively cheap stick with med-high quality features, if you can tolerate a few minor issues.
  • Pros: I've had this same stick for more than 4 years now and aside from some dust it's still like new. I have not experienced what some others are saying about a short durability span, so as long as you're not beating it against the wall, getting food all over it, or dropping it consistently it should ...
  • Cons: Being a hardcore flight simmer, I find the onboard throttle lever to be poorly designed at best. It's very small, has a very limited range, no dual/multi, no reverse, no detents, and just doesn't meet my needs for throttle/acceleration control in MSFS. I have also experienced to some extent what ...

Excellent

John D., Newegg
25 April 2014
  • Summary: Easy to get up and running once the software is installed.
  • Pros: Easy to set up and configure.
  • Cons: Had to download the software and drivers from web site. Not really a con per say but I would have thought it would come with a CD.
